Event description

Description

The third Lyda Henderson Memorial Lecture

This year’s lecture looks at improvements in 3D breast imaging and the results of an audit of Scalp cooling throughout Scotland.

Heather McVicars Senior Research Nurse will report her evaluation of the network of Scalp Coolers throughout Scotland. These are used to help reduce hair loss in patients receiving chemotherapy.

Tomosynthesis is a new 3D breast imaging technique. Digital tomosynthesis of the breast is different from a standard mammogram in the same way a CT scan of the chest is different from a standard chest X-ray. Consultant Radiologist Dr Gauri Babu will present her findings from a trial of this new technique.
